Like everyone said I think, they should have aired the Guida VS Bhendo fight, and after the JDS Vs Cain fight....

That way new comer in MMA would have seen a really nice technical fight, and after that a KO...

But this isn't what happened, so like I said earlier in this thread, the fight no, the TV deal maybe, but after some thought I would say no !
I though the show itself was ok though. I guess they just used the tried and tested formula that works for every other sport in terms of production. Even Brock came across quite well in the pundit section. And Dana's face in the post fight section was brilliant

I really hated the Rocky esque music they used though

I think in an ideal world the Fox broadcast would have been 90minutes with the Guida-Henderson fight but there's nothing I'd have cut from the hour broadcast. The one thing I'd have changed is to not have White as a pundit. I can see the rationale for having him there talking about the organisation at the beginning but he was clearly uncomfortable breaking down fights. Personally I'd have got Randy in to be alongside Brock - what better way to introduce the division than have its greatest UFC champion along as a pundit?

That was actually a big deal because that's Fox's signature music that they use for their sports broadcasts i.e. NFL. So the fact that they were so aggressively branding the UFC like that is a positive sign to me.

Ahhh well I dont watch hand egg so I have no idea

I know it's a tried and tested formula and the UFC seemed to slot in quite well. But what, if anything would you like to see them do in the future in terms of the broadcast?

I think the number one thing I'd change is the one we always knew was going to which is for the broadcast to be longer so they can include more stuff. To me Cain-JDS and Guida-Henderson in one hour would have been rushed but in a ninety-minute broadcast would have been perfect. Other than that it really is small things - getting a permanent pundit to replace Dana, etc.

I was surprised John Anik didnt get the chair aswell in the pundits section. I assumed that's what he was brought in for. Think he'd do a better job, as he actually knows what he's talking about

He was presenting the International Version that we got to see on Premier.

And the guy who was in the chair was the Fox NFL Sunday anchor (and has done some boxing stuff as well). As I said Fox went all out on this...a great contrast to the rather embarrassed presentation by CBS for EliteXC or Strikeforce.
